Peko was promoted to the Broncos' active roster, Ben Swanson of the team's official site reports. Peko was waived by the Broncos on Oct. 21 to free up roster space for offensive line depth. With defensive linemen Damata Peko (illness) and Adam Gotsis (ankle) questionable for Sunday's game against the Raiders, the 24-year-old was called up for added depth. Peko has never played substantial defensive snaps, so even if he's called into the game Sunday, fantasy owners shouldn't consider him until they can see his potential.
Peko broke his foot and won't be able to practice until early in training camp, Mike Kils of 9News Denver reports. Peko is slated to undergo surgery to repair the broken bone on Wednesday before facing a recovery of six to eight weeks. The injury is potentially devastating for the young lineman, who played in just one game as a rookie in 2016. He'll need to do all he can to make the Week 1 roster when he returns now that he's going to miss several weeks.
Peko signed a contract with the Broncos on Wednesday, The Denver Post reports. Peko, an undrafted rookie out of Oregon State, hasn't seen any game action this season as he had previously resided on the Broncos' practice squad up to this point. Barring an injury to Sylvester Williams, he's unlikely to receive much playing time in the season finale next Sunday versus the Raiders.
